About Me

In terms of music as far back as I can remember I have always loved music and was playing my Mum and Dads record collection from a early age on my very own second hand record player. It was not soul or jazz but rock and roll and crooner’s from a collection of 78’s that I had been given. There was not a day when I did not have some form of musical tune in my head and I always felt that I needed more. I was exposed to Jazz during the 1980's by listening to pirate radio in London and have developed this love of the genre as I have got older.

I now have the privilege of broadcasting two radio shows, one where Jazz features heavily and the second is a jazz based show. I am always on the lookout for new artists and have had the chance of interviewing people for both shows from all over the world.

If I was asked for jazz music influences I would always say both Miles Davis and Bill Evans as I find their music timeless.

My Jazz Story

Published on: 2016-05-21

I love jazz because it takes me on a journey and I never quite know where it will end. From Miles to Bill Evans to Coltrane to Tin Men and the Telephone each song tells a story and takes me to places I have never been Its a mind changer, an influencer and brings pure happiness; maybe an education becuase each little trip in my mind leaves me wanting more and more. Thats what jazz is to me.
